T.I.P. Program Helps Bring Poaching to an End


Citizens can earn reward money for turning in poachers through Indiana’s Turn in a Poacher (T.I.P.) program. Indiana Conservation Officers are encouraging citizens to partner with the Turn in a Poacher program and become involved in putting an end to poaching. T.I.P. is a nonprofit organization that originated in 1983 for the purpose of paying rewards to promote public involvement and assistance to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement effort. Over 1,300 tips have been received since 2011 and over $13,000 has been given in rewards for tips that led to the arrest of a poacher.
